    Aight - so the date has been determined, but the location has not.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I definitly want to make it to this one!


    Well I think a computer store would be a decent idea... So I will suggest the Frys Electronics store in Arlington. Its kinda a central base between Fort Worth and Dallas so if anybody from the two cities want to come, its not that far in either direction.... Plus there is just about everything in a 2 block radius since its near the Parks Mall, and tons of resturants.... CompUSA is around the corner.... Starbucks Lots of things...

    But, I have no idea how well that will work out for everyone else.... Just a suggestion

    We chose the Hooters on 75 last time in Plano because it's right around the corner from a Fry's.
    Of course, nobody needed to go to Fry's, but we had fried food at Hooters, if that counts.

    Here's the only problem I see with the Fry's in Arlington. TheLandYacht is going to be in town to re-do the interior of his van. For Red & I (who are going to be helping with the fabrication), it's an hour to Arlington and an hour back, cutting into the already short amount of time we have to work on this monstrosity of a project (pun intended, Scott!).

    For that reason, and that reason alone, I'd much rather see something closer to the north end of Dallas this time. Next time, I don't care. We can hold it at WinStar or Harrah's in Shreveport or downtown Tyler for all I care.
    I think the Hooters on US-75 is a good choice. It's also right near a Fry's if someone needs parts, so it meets we87's needs.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Theres really no particular needs for it to be near a computer store, I just think its fitting And the reason I picked the Frys in Arlington is because of everything else around it, theres burger joints, resturants, shopping areas, barnes and noble... I mean the list goes on and on... But in either case, Hooters on 75 is just as good as any place. So its all good from my side

    I do have a question though: Will you guys be doing fabrication >at< the meet? Or is it just a project thats going on anyway, so you dont want it to interfere with your plans...

    Also if possible I'd perfer something later in time, like after 4 or 5... that works great for me.

    This meet is simply a chance to get together, meet up, get ideas, shoot the ****, talk, etc.

    We're not going to be building stuff in the parking lot at Hooters...

    The issue I see with the parking lot of a retail store durring business hours is that it's not excatly kosher. It's technically loitering. Especially since I really don't see people coming to the meet so they can work on their cars in the parking lots and go into frys to buy stuff to work on their cars...lol
